Have you signed up for the Eat at Home Challenge? (Plus, our groceries & menu plan from this past week!)

I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 grocery budget for our family of five. This includes almost all of our breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners + most household products (toiletries, laundry soap, etc.).

For live updates, be sure to follow my Instagram Stories. See all posts on my $70 Grocery Budget here.

I’m gearing up for another Eat at Home Challenge and I’m so excited about it!

I’ll be sharing my grocery list, what we bought at Aldi for the challenge, a video of a quick and simple recipe you can make every day this coming week, plus lots of menu-planning tricks and tips! If you haven’t signed up for the daily emails from me, be sure to go sign up here.

You can also sign up to get notifications of my daily Facebook Live videos where I’m making dinner in the crockpot. Just click on the button below and we’ll send you a quick message on Facebook so you don’t miss out!
